Everything mixed again...

Once again it will be a time for total mashup - mix post with different kind of songs and music.
The Eurovisions are coming, Emeli Sandé would be coming to Berlin (I know I should go and see her!) Moby lauched some super relaxed relaxation music (it's actually good for falling asleep), Austra has released a new album called "Future politics" (and they would be also coming to Berlin next week!)...

But first I will chop Eurovisions into pieces...noo...I will not. I will just pick my favorite Finnish song and one from Sweden. Mostly it will be again another year of sad ballads about world peace and over the top glitter blast!

Okay okay, so there's always quite hmmm... "interesting" acts competing in Eurovisions. This year I was super happy about the Finnish contestant Norma John with the song "Blackbird" and yes, it's a ballad with a darker tone. But still works, good song and great piano playing.

Norma John - "Blackbird"

The song starts at 0:37

And the Finnish/Swedish Krista Siegfrieds tried to go to the finals in Melodifestival in Sweden. She totally should have gone to the finals but oh no...but she did well!

Krista Siegfrieds - "Snurra min jord"

Bring on the Swedish disco pop!

Don't worry that was the ESC part of the post and yes you did survive without glitzer bombs!

Now your task is to imagine a summer morning, early around 05:00 or 06:00 o'clock. The sun is rising and it's already warm and suddenly you hear this song and start to dance!

Rysy - "Crystal love"

Rysy is a duo from Poland and you can hear more of their music here: 

The next one is from Clap! Clap! they are from Italy. Definitely interesting, bit strange music but will have to listen more to know..but this song was pretty cool! The new album from them is called "A thousand skies"

Clap! Clap! - "Ar-Raqis" and "Black Acre - Nguwe feat. Bongeziwe Mabandla"

The next artist is from Sweden (the promised land of awesome music!)
This artist is called Dorisburg aka. John Alexander Berg and I got to listen the album "Irrbloss" and I really really liked the whole album. Really amazing music. Should buy the album too some time. If you want some pretty chill (well it's officially labeled under techno, but who cares!) but not boring music you should check this album, It's kinda hard to pick my favorite songs from this one because they are all really great!

See (hear) for yourself! I totally love these!

Dorisburg - "Irrbloss"

And okay a second one is a must!

Dorisburg - "Votiv"

And well...third one never hurt's more from the techno side..

Dorisburg - "Gloson"

This music totally gets a "hjärtan" from me! You can find out more music from this awesome artist here:

Now if you know Kings of convenience this sounds pretty familiar...I just can't help hearing them in this song..the musician is Baba Stiltz with a song called "Baby"  hehheee...also from Sweden! Heja Sverige! The song is from the "Is everything" EP.

Baba Stiltz - "Baby"

You can find more music from him here:

If you feel tired from your working day then you should totally hear this song while drinking tea or something will be a moment of bliss! The artist is called Lung Dart from the album "As I lay drying" with the song "Healthy functional tissue".  Peace out!

Lung Dart - "Healthy functional tissue"

I can't really figure out the lyrics but there's a part with "you need a woman.."

Found out more here:

Here's a short info about the duo from their Bandcamp page:

"Lung Dart are Tim Clay and James Rapson - together they make textural, layered music that’s deeply soulful and melancholic, utilising live instrumentation as well as field recordings captured on their phones ranging from sounds of the bowels of Wembley Stadium at 4am to the bellowing wind coming off the Leicestershire hills and broken machinery. The result is a collage of sound inspired by 
the likes of Arthur Russell, Bjork, Lonnie Holley and Scott Walker, with hints of Connan Mocakasin, Windy & Carl and James Blake all influenced and shaped by the world at large. "

The next artist is Akira Kosemura but he has unfortunately only preview songs on his Soundcloud page but still totally worth of checking! Beautiful and calm music!

Wild beasts is also a totally new artist for me. He has also only preview songs on Soundcloud but you should check them and go to Spotify (where you can listen to them all)

The next artist comes from South Africa and I have so far heard only one song from her but it is so awesome! The artist is Nonku Phiri and the song is "Regrettables"

Okay and I will end the post with some sleepy music...Moby with "Long ambients" which you can buy or get for free if you want! It's suuper relaxed "quiet" music.

Check for yourself! Good night and sleep well!
